Superintendent Patricia Greco of the School District of Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin claimed that “Education as a profession is attempting to jump from initiative to initiative rather than trying to imbed principles of improvement into the system.”
In a world where change, innovation and process excellence have become convention; why is education – the root of our development – still sluggishly slacking behind?
Although the term “continuous improvement” has become a popular buzzword in and around education in recent years, the implementation of continuous improvement on a large scale does not seem to be taking place. Where this has been actioned however, it has shown and proven to produce exceptional results. The transition of certain continuous improvement models into curriculums could be ground breaking in the development of the education system and could transform how we see it today.
